as the pentagon or c.i.a. says. we heard a story this week about a very brave cleric in yemen who stood up in his mosque and denounced al qaeda, two days later some al qaeda guys come to visit him and they're arguing outside and they're incinerated in the drone attack. one of these guys was on the u.s. side. so not only is class value damage but also creates a -- collateral damage but also creates a lot of resentment. >> families and children killed, especially in northern pakistan but families and children of terrorists. and so, you know, i don't know that it's gotten much farther beyond that. >> brennan was asked this week about -- by senator wideman. what do we do if we make a mistake? and the c.i.a. director was quick to respond and said, we need to make that public, unlike -- >> i think the real problem here is that this has been an executive branch operation. what they're now doing is opening it up to the appropriate people in the congress because the more eyeballs you have on the policy, maybe there should be a court, as dianne feinstein suggests but you demystify it. chris: when you're co

mexico and killed in yemen. but between those very high profile killings, there have been dozens and dozens, ultimately hundreds of drone strikes under president obama, most of them mostly unnoticed in the news. tonight monday of president obama's inauguration, the first day president obama outlined this wide ranging liberal agenda for his second term, that same day there was a drone strike in yemen. and that drone strike on inauguration day followed drone strikes in yemen on both days of the weekend that preceded inauguration day. so we had drone strikes on saturday and on sunday and on monday, the monday the president was sworn in. it doesn't really make the news. one of the most unusual things about drone strikes for us as citizens in a country that does this is that for so long our country would not admit that we did them, even when we all knew that we did. that was the case. that did not change officially until april of last year. april 2012. and the person the administration put forth to do that, to admit that policy for the first time publicly was john brennan. >> so let m

they have done simply because if you are an executive of the al qaeda in yemen, pakistan or somalia and you have been killed your cousins or your driver will take your place and with him many other people. the implication of the use of drone is not known in america, but it is not, and it is very well known in pakistan, and especially in the areas of the waziristan where people cannot stand americans anymore, because of the buzz of the drones going over their heads over and over. they know that you might give a ride to a guy in the streets or you might be talking to another g guy, and actually in a coffee shop, and you will be killed in that moment without any reason, simply because you were standing in the wrong place at the wrong person. so all of this has terrible implications, but if you think of what is happening in yemen, i mean, the major al qaeda fighting there or the islamic fight is not against the americans anymore, but the yemeni government and the pakistani government and so it is engaging in a war that is an american war which it is not a american war. >> not anymore nthan the

in a certain region of yemen, the white house is essentially asserting that these people are terroristed and that we can kill them, and to me that is -- that's an incredibly dangerous threshold to have crossed. i mean redefining imminent in the way that the white paper did where it may be possibly at some point in the future this person would pose a direct threat to the united states, that combined with the signature strikes is a disturbing aspect of that. >> could i comment? >> yes, please. >> i think the appropriate thing to do is to ask the question about this precrime stuff and the criminal law's more complicated on that. we not only have a law of murder, with very a law of aiding and abetling and conspiracy to commit murder and under these circumstances if they're engaged full-time conspiracy, it's certain they could be prosecute nard if we send out the call and say, come on home and be prosecuted. they're going to flee at that point. they become outlaws. so i don't think you'd f want to say every man in yemen counts as a terrorism because he's in the wrong program. i receive one in
